Everton V Swansea at Goodison Park : Match Preview

17 December 2017
Yannick Bolasie eyeing Everton return against Swansea after a year on sidelines

Yannick Bolasie could make his return to Everton's matchday squad for Monday's Premier League clash with Swansea at Goodison Park.

The winger has been out of action for just over a year due to a knee injury, but boss Sam Allardyce indicated at his pre-match press conference that he could be involved against the Swans after appearing for the under-23s this week.

James McCarthy (hamstring) and Leighton Baines (calf) remain unavailable, along with the likes of Ross Barkley (hamstring), Ramiro Funes Mori (knee) and Seamus Coleman (broken leg).

Swansea striker Wilfried Bony will be fit for trip.

Bony came off in the closing stages of Wednesday's 4-0 home defeat to Manchester City after feeling some muscle tightness.

But he has shown no after-effects of that since the City game and, with Wayne Routledge fit again, Swansea are at full-strength apart from the continued absence of Kyle Bartley (knee ligaments).
